The Juncos Have Arrived

The Oregon juncos arrived today. Amazingly, they are only a day earlier than last year. The two males arrived thirsty and spent some time drinking at the bird bath, which is rather unusual for them. These two males have been winter residents for the past couple of years. There will be other groups with males and females, but these two males arrive first and they always seem to be together. More on that later.

The white-crowned sparrows should be here within the week.

I'm not much of a birder, but I'm pretty sure I've seen white crowned sparrows in my Calabasas backyard in this last week.
